Andrew Crie

Male, CreeID#1353, (26 March 1678 - before 1694)
ChartsLine 7. The Perth glovers line
Chart 1306 Perth glovers
Andrew Crie was born on 26 March 1678.1 He was the son of James Crie and Isobell Blair. Andrew Crie was baptised on 2 April 1678 in Perth, Scotland.2

Andrew Crie died before 1694. A deed of 1694 described John Crie as third lawful son of the said James Crie. This implies that two out of James's four sons born before John must have died by 1694. (All four are known to be "lawful sons".) We know Alexander was alive in 1711 and that Patrick went on to become Provost of Perth like his father, dying in 1754. That means that Andrew and Hendrie Crie died by 1694.

Perth, 10th June, 1746.

We, your Majesty's dutiful and loyal subjects, the Magistrates and Common Council of Perth, now that in your royal clemency we again enjoy our privileges as a royal burgh by your order in Council of 28th May last, authorising us to elect magistrates and councillors, according to our ancient constitution, by which we were deprived by the late horrid Rebellion. We beg leave, with hearts full of gratitude to Heaven, humbly to congratulate your Majesty on the blessed event of the crushing of that most wicked and audacious attempt of traitors against your Majesty's crown, and all that is valuable to your loyal subjects. When we reflect how those infatuated rebels, whom no oaths can bind nor money soften, were elated and their numbers increased by their success against some of your Majesty's troops at Preston, how they impudently and impiously construed the tempestuous winds and rain, which prevented their total overthrow by your Majesty's troops at Falkirk, as the interposition of Heaven on their behalf: and when we reflect how that great multitude of traitors, on the approach of our glorious deliverer, H.R.H. the Duke, at the head of your Majesty's troops, did retreat and fly before him, till in the near neighbourhood of these barbarous northern parts, where a spirit of much dis-loyality is chiefly cherished. He defeated them in battle, and we cannot but, with the atheism and infidelity of the age, observe the hand of God in this event; as thereby His Royal Highness, being in the heart of that rebellious country, has it more in his power to complete our deliverance and to prevent our fears of any after attempts of these silly fools of haughty France. May the Most High God, by whom kings reign, continue graciously to preserve your Majesty's person and government and the succession to the Crown of Britain in your illustrious house to the latest ages, for as the true interest of your Majesty and Royal Family and that of the people of Great Britain and Ireland are inseparable, both as to sacred and civil concerns, the stability of your Throne must fill our most enlarged wishes, and this shall ever be our prayer to God.

Patrick Crie, Provost.15


Patrick Crie died on 17 March 1754 in Perth. "To the memory of Patrick Cree, Esq., who died 17th March 1754 aged 70 years. And of William Stewart Esq., his son-in-law, who died 27th October 1786 aged 76 years, the former having been 7 times, the latter 11 times elected Provosts of Perth. Both were remarkable for loyalty to their sovereign. For an impartial administration of justice to their fellow citizens. For integrity and honour, and for Christian piety. This stone was erected in testimony of regard and affectionate remembrance of her Father and her Husband, by Christian Stewart, the daughter and widow, who died March 1795, aged 76 years."16

John Cree1

Male, CreeID#1359
ChartsBranch 7c. The Abernethy line
We know of four Crie men, Hendrie Cree, Johne Crie and Andrew Crie, who married in Abernethy, Perthshire, Scotland, between 1699 and 1718. We can only trace the birth record of one of them (Johne Crie), probably because the other three were born in Abernethy and the parochial records from before 1694 have not survived. But for the fact that two of them were named John(e), we would have surmised that they were brothers.

John Cree married Catharine Clerk on 20 December 1711 in Abernethy, Perthshire. The Family Search source gives the date 20 October 1711. It often gives the date of a "Notice of marriage" so a later date is more likely to be correct.2,3

His daughter Margaret Cree was baptised on 19 July 1713 in Abdie, Fife, Scotland.2

His daughter Elizabeth Cree was baptised on 24 July 1715 in Abdie, Fife.

His son John Crie was baptised on 19 January 1718 in Newburgh, Fife, Scotland.2

His son William Crie was baptised on 14 February 1720 in Newburgh, Fife.2

ChartsLine 7. The Perth glovers line

Chart 1390 Deptford
Alexander Crie was born on 12 August 1730 in Perth, Scotland.1,2 He was baptised on 13 August 1730 in Perth.1,3 He was the son of James Crie and Elizabeth Moncreiff.

Alexander Crie married Mary Gayton, daughter of John Gayton and Esther Gayton (married name), on 28 February 1761 in St Nicholas, Deptford, Kent, England. They were married by licence. Both were unmarried and "of this parish."4

Alexander Crie served as Second Mate on the East India Company ship Britannia under Captain Thomas Bates Rous. One voyage left Portsmouth on 6 May 1762 and arrived back at the Downs on 29 June 1764; another left Plymouth on 1 Jan 1766, returning to the Downs on 20 July 1767.5

His son Alexander Crie was born on 12 July 1765.6

On 29 September 1767 Alexander Crie wrote to Lord Clive craving his influence to obtain a captaincy of an East Indiaman.7

His son James Crie was baptised on 8 May 1768 in St Dunstan and All Saints, Stepney, Middlesex, England.8

On 24 April 1769 Robert Hay Drummond, Archbishop of York, wrote to Clive recommending "Mr Crie" (probably Alexander Crie) to him. We have speculated as to whether "Mr Crie" was one of the Sprotbrough line, John Cree born 1747 for example, in view of Drummond's residence at Brodsworth. However it seems more likely, because of the previous letter from Alexander Crie and the spelling Crie in this letter, that he is Alexander Crie. The Drummonds were Earls of Kinnoull and Viscounts Dupplin and so would be well acquainted with Alexander Crie's father, grandfather and two uncles who had been Provosts of Perth. (Alexander's uncle William Stewart was Provost in 1767-8.)9

Probate of Alexander Crie's will was granted on 12 July 1792 in Edinburgh, Scotland.10,11
